In the past year, Australians stood up to confront enormous challenges.

The drought, storms and catastrophic bushfire season followed by the Covid-19 pandemic have tested us profoundly.

Governments, business and communities have shown the ability to collaborate and act urgently to address these challenges. It is long past time we take a similar approach and accelerate bold innovation and urgent responses to the climate crisis.

This CityTalk will help progress a national conversation about the urgent action needed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, improve affordability and drive economic opportunity.

The City of Sydney has been at the forefront of action to mitigate global warming and the NSW Government is leading the way on renewables for our state.

A national target for net-zero and a green-led recovery tabled in the Australian Parliament could provide business with certainty on our national climate policy.

Join renowned global and local leaders who are taking bold action for a green led recovery.
